Prostitution Sting in Wilmington

WILMINGTON -- A prostitution sting left 15 people with citations.

Police say Jeanette Strickland, Laurie Babich and Kelly Fajen were caught last week asking an undercover agent if he wanted sex.

Ten men and five women were cited during the sting, but only five people went to jail. Police say they focused their investigation on parts of Market Street and the 500 block of Meares Street.

A woman who lives in the area says she's tired of watching prostitutes hang around her house.

"I can be in my kitchen at 6:30 in the morning at the sink doing something, and I happen to look out the window and see them at 6:30 being picked up, and that's like all day long," said Elizabeth Boyd.

Boyd would like to see a rehabilitation program put into place.
